We all love Paul O'Connell.... there's no use denying it. The giant Limerick man has given us more reason to be in awe of him with one of the greatest ever answers on BBC's hit show 'A Question of Sport'

Playing alongside former champion jockey AP McCoy and ex-England cricketer Phil Tufnell, the Munster and Ireland legend somehow managed to decipher an answer which made rival team captain Matt Dawson and presenter Sue Barker give him a standing ovation.

The teams were first asked to identify seven sportspeople and then from subsequent questions their initials were placed in missing words.

After McCoy had correctly answered that former tennis star Goran Ivanisevic was Croatian.

From just two letters out of 23 O'Connell came up with the answer - Borussia Monchengladbach.

The reaction was brilliant. Enjoy below:
